Obama's opening salvo against his adversaries in the opposing party has yielded a measure of victory. Merely tossing the race grenade into the enemy camp allows the foot soldiers to wade in and that they do. Accordingly, tbogg of FireDogLake does a round-up of conservative outrage at the remarks and merely asserts in the title that the "denial" is a "Telltale Sign of a Guilty Conscience." He even adds the black conservative to the list--the one whose father is of the same tribe as Obama's father--and he does so without the faintest hint of how absurd that is, adding a vintage photo of the Klan for good measure.
Always remember: to those who would gain power by any means, making sense is a mere luxury, not a requirement.
UPDATE: If you click on the screen capture, you'll see that the round-up of bloggers posting about Obama's racist remarks includes Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter Larry Johnson. Johnson's name has been mentioned around the blogosphere quite a bit in the last few weeks due to some unproven assertions that he had been making about Michelle Obama (I won't repeat them here).
I just wanted to point that out and note that, in the Identity Politics playbook, when a Democrat gets branded as a racist, he/she automatically becomes a Republican. Neat trick, no?
